ELP Gold Leader - MAZZETTI
Member since 2011
Mazzetti is a global provider of MEP engineering, technology consulting, lighting design, and sustainable design, with expertise in systems design and energy optimization. Founded in 1962, Mazzetti is an employee-owned Benefit Corporation with eleven offices and 220 full-time employees. The company opened an office in downtown Denver in 2008 and has completed hundreds of projects throughout Colorado and beyond.
Focused on making the world a better place by creating better environments, Mazzetti designs healthful, technologically-advanced buildings that serve people and the planet. For Mazzetti, sustainability is not an “add on” service – it is integrated in everything they do. All Mazzetti projects incorporate sustainable engineering principles and practices, from design to construction to occupancy.
Mazzetti is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact – a voluntary initiative encouraging companies worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies – and the Architecture 2030 Challenge – an international call to action for all new buildings, developments, and major renovations to be carbon-neutral by 2030.
As a Benefit Corporation, Mazzetti has a commitment to serve social and environmental good. The company focuses on four areas of public benefit: Employee Wellness, Community & Environment, Global Health, and the UN Global Compact. Mazzetti employees volunteer annually to support Grid Alternatives, bringing no- or low-cost solar power to families in need.
In 2013, Mazzetti founded the Sextant Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit dedicated to developing sustainable energy and water solutions for low-resourced healthcare facilities around the world. Since its inception, the foundation has donated time and resources to projects in Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, and Honduras.

Mazzetti served on the design team that transformed a former construction yard into a park that serves as model of sustainable design and environmental education. When it rains, the park’s pavilion and landscape passively collect runoff and as it flows through layers of native plants, soil, and filter fabric it is purified and collected in underground tanks. An on-site classroom with a 14.4kW array of solar panels achieve net zero energy use and a green roof allows for passive heating and cooling through thermal mass.
